Mike's Blog Round Up
December 19, 2013

alicublog - Ramesh Ponnuru explains Pope Francis;

Gin and Tacos - why should Mitt Romney help pay for roads and bridges?

Mike the Mad Biologist - wage increases, not wage subsidies;

The Reaction - after eight years, my mayor remains clueless;

Towleroad - yet another homophobe with a great big megaphone.

blogenfreude blogs at stinque.com and still needs that boneless fresh pork slow-cook recipe, if anyone is paying attention.

Send tips to MBRU (at) crooksandliars (dot) com.
